priebus is standing by live this hour. >>> ten years after the invasion of iraq, a bush white house insider is here to reveal the secrets of how america was spun into war. >>> and from gop power broker to cable news kingmaker, a new book pulls back the veil on the controversial fox news boss, roger. we want to welcome our viewers from the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> in an extraordinary look inward, republicans think they figured out what went wrong back in november. dissecting the election defeat, the gop has found that it is viewed as narrow-minded, out of touch, and full of stuffy old men. one calls for major changes in style and strategy, but how do they go about repairing a deeply divided party? cnn's brianna keilar is here in "the situation room," and she's taking a closer look at this report and fascinating material inside. >> fascinating material inside, and one of the things we're seeing in the republican party, what it's planning to do, is invest some serious money to build the republican brand in areas that are
jess bush. his body never recovered. and now the ground gave way between two houses. hole is estimated to be about eight feet across and ten feet deep. >> the sinkhole i went to tell my dad. i know someone might get hurt. >> everybody was very nervous but this is my house. >> heather: scary stuff. officials say as of now the houses are not in danger but both have been evacuated as a precaution. >> rick: switching gears, in this month is shaping up to be a sport' fan dream. the miami historic win streak and tiger woods fighting to regain his ranking as the number one golfer in the world. joining us to talk about this sportscaster, jim gregg. good to talk to you. let's talk basketball, even folks that don't pay attention to college basketball started watching when the calendar turns over to march. this march madness is living up to the hype. >> it's unbelievable. everybody tunes in because every part of the country is involved. only place that didn't have a team involved is texas but they played some games down there so they are involved hosting games. it's incredible. all these upsets a
face a runoff. had el is the favorite and has a strong candidate on the democratic side colbert bush, stephen colbert's sister. is that all correct, chris? >> you got it. if you ever didn't think american politics didn't believe in second chances, all you have to do is look at mark sanford. this is a guy when he left in 200, everyone, myself included, said that's it, maybe he'll show up on a reality show, but never coming back into politics. there's a two-week runoff with a guy names curtis bostics while elizabeth colbert bush will raise money, not just because of her famous brother, but she has the capacity to raise money and will run a real campaign, any rpg including one i would say named mark sanford probably has an edge. it's sort of the coastal part of south carolina, including hilton head and charleston. we could be looking at congressman mark sanford again. >>> amazing. here's a jump ball, pun intended, for either of you. the president before he left for the middle east did his brackets with espn's andy katz. his picks? >> kansas is going to win. i tell you that -- >> i knew
. this is where america is. i think what jeb bush, the clip you showed of jeb bush, shows what the dramatic problem is for the republican party. they can't be a party of intolerance when it comes to gay marriage, when it comes to immigration, when it comes to whether you believe in climate change or not. >> well, let me ask you both this quickly. my theory in some ways, it's sort of like gun control was in the '90s for democrats, which is there is -- there are plenty of people in the base of the democratic party who still believe gun control, but the leaders of the party did not talk aggressively about it. so there's going to be a part of the republican base in this december nbc "wall street journal" poll. 27% of republicans broadly favor it. so i don't want to oversell it. 27% favor same-sex marriage. there is going to be a part of your party, alex, that doesn't -- does not want to change principles. should your leadership, people running for president, should they, a., say, look, i support same-sex marriage. fact you can disagree. or should they not talk as much about it? >> i think i per
, one of the cases before the court, will argue it's unconstitutional, former bush solicitor general ted olsen a conservative is teaming up with high-profile liberal lawyer david boy. cnn chief political analyst gloria borger has been talking to both of these men. gloria, i find this fascinating, this relationship and how it's evolved over time. >> it is. >> how did it come together? >> the way the whole case has evolved is sort of a script that could have been written in hollywood. >> right. >> because in many ways it actually was written in hollywood. it was november 2008. barack obama had just won the white house. >> there's nothing civil about a man marrying another man! >> but proposition 8 passed, taking away the right for gays and lesbians to marry in california. >> california has made it very clear. >> we're sitting there, you know, kind of licking the wounds and saying, what do we do now 0? and serendipitously, a friend of my wife's came by the table and she says, i think you'd be very interested to find out that you might find an ally in ted olsen on your issue. >> that's the t
in the history of the u.s./israeli relations. it goes beyond begin and carter and bush 41 and the reality is that no american president for political reasons and policy reasons can afford to have this sort of relationship. a lot of it rests on netanyahu and his first incarnation. even clinton, a guy who was prepared to cut him all kinds of breaks was annoyed in extreme us with some of netanyahu's frustrating behavior. but the reality is that barack obama has to clear away this old business, this dysfunctional relationship and he has to deal with two basic realities. he does not want to be the american president on whose watch the two-state solution expires and he certainly doesn't want to be the america president on whose watch iran acquire it is xas capacity or everybody a nuclear weapon. so israel is central to both of those stories. he's going early, there's no expectations and he's going early with a view i suspect to seeing whether or not he can't manage that relationship with netanyahu more effectively and create a new relationship with an israeli public who's deeply mistrustful of
to the cairo speech, which was a speech to the arab and muslim world, the belief that bush had ruined america's reputation in the arab and muslim world. and that he needed to fix that. after all, we had 150,000 troops deployed in afghanistan and iraq. he was about to send more. we needed to improve our relations with the arabs and the muslims. and if we could achieve that, i think he felt that would redound to the benefit of israel because then the arabs would be prepared to engage with israel in response to our influence on them, and israel would then respond. that was essentially, as i understand, his theory of the case. and so essentially the message that he was playing to the arab world was i care about you. i understand your concerns. and-- . >> rose: the image of america is no longer the image i want you to have of america. >> correct. and by the way, i understand the palestinian issue is your hot-button issue and i'm going to solve it. he promised them that he would close cuan bega began-- guantanamo and solve the palestinian problem. but the message that he sent to israel at the same
made clinton, bush and obama ineligible for the presidency because of marijuana arrests. we'd have to reimagine president paul songis or president mario cuomo. now we're in kornacki land. those are not horrible options. what wants to choose a president from a list of guys who were young in the '60s and 7 os i'70 so stiff and frumpy they never tried it? arrests, for possession, not for sales, and for possession of marijuana, not harder drugs. why are we still conducting the war on drugs? criminalizing weed smokers, militarizing police and spending trillions to stop nothing. in the '70s, most criminalnolol experts concluded prison does not significantly deter crime and those with meaningful life opportunities were less likely to engage in crime regardless of the penalty, while those who went to prison were far more likely to commit crime in the future. prisons don't prevent crime. they create criminals. and america has the highest rate of incarceration in the world. what are we doing? happy monday. and now, my friend and yours, karen finney in for what's his name. don't tell me. don'
by bill clinton and george w. bush and they got used to that and he now has an opportunity to go there, to explain to them that he's got their back, that he's been with them in their times of difficulties, whether it's at the u.n. or rockets from gaza or the iranian nuclear program, and that he's going to be with them in the future, and i think he'll use his oratorical magic and i think he'll have a powerful impact and that will be very helpful for an effort to restart the peace process after he leaves. tavis: you've said a couple of things that i want to pick apart. let me start with the notion that the president has a very low standing, a low approval rating amongst the israeli public. what has been the cause of that and has his -- i'm trying to find the right word here -- fractured or less than lovie dovie relationship with bibi netanyahu had anything to do with that standing? >> well, it's interesting you use the words "lovie dovie" because the president is not a lovie dovie kinda guy and that's part of the problem. i
designed by president bush, implemented by president obama, and inspired by president kafka. [laughter] see, reporters are not allowed in the courtroom. they have to watch the trial from behind soundproofed glass and hear the proceedings on a 40-second delay. and to protect national security, the judge or a security officer in the courtroom can hit a mute button which shuts off the audio to the reporters and indicates this by making a red light on the judge's bench spin. the red light also indicates that all dress shirts and men's slacks are 20% off. but on january 29th, the red light turned on and cut the audio, but-- and this is the fun part-- neither the judge, nor the security officer had done it, causing the livid and confused judge to say, quote "note for the record, that the 40-second delay was initiated not by me. if some external body is turning things off, if someone is turning the commissions off under their own view of what things ought to be, with no reason or explanation, then we are going to have a little meeting about who turns that light on or off."

bush book that came out that surprised people. here's rand paul attempting to endorse it while minimizing its importance which i think is the new republican rhetoric. take a look. >> the immigration debate has been trapped and it's been polarized by two terms, path to citizenship and amnesty. i'm not granting any new pathway or any new line. the only thing i am saying that may be different than hat we have now is that i don't think you should have to go back to mexico and apply. i think that if that's the primary country we're talking about or central america. >> here's the polling on this pathway to citizenship all americans, you know, if you believe pathway to citizenship is best way to deal with illegal immigrant, americans 63%, democrats 71%, republicans 53%. tea party are the people not surprisingly that oppose it. >> 45%. >> that's pretty good. when if you asked about obama care or something like that. >> republicans have learned that while these folks who were undocumented can't vote their kids who are born here are becoming citizens are voting and not voting for republi

are the democratic strategist joe trippi and former bush senior advisor karl rove. welcome to you both. >> good to be with you. >> shannon: the process is in motion for the first time in several years. when people vote on these, there are political calculations. we saw that in the senate and the house. >> definitely. one thing that is true we have a process this time. the senate was 50-49. a close vote. look at what the house did with that vote. they voted 261 against it. 35 of them democrats. many are up for re-election in 2014. that was part of calculation. there was 221 je votes and 207 no. but look at what the senate did against that one. not even close. only 4 senators voted for it. 59 voted against it. five were g.o.p. senators. some of the no votes in there. four were senators coming up for re-election in 2014. they are looking for tax increase revenue. house side they want to repeal obamacare. how they bring it together and what is in the two different bills, how they reconcile them, we have a process. that is the good news. the bad news is we are having the same debate from the beginni

more than 140 stories the paper ran before the war that gave the bush administration's party line on the front page while burying any objections inside around page 18. now, that may sound like a fail u. to you it does to me. after the post commissioned a piece by writer greg mitchell about media failures, it clearly had second thoughts about putting that in print. for more, i'm delighted to be joined by greg mitchell. greg, thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you john. >> you sound terrific. now, you would seem to be the perfect person to write an outlook story on the media's failures on the run up to the iraq war. it's worth pointing out the media is equally to blame as the politicians. why did they tell you they killed your piece? >> they said it didn't have enough new insights and analysis. of course, i disagreed and i did post the rejected story on line over the weekend so people can judge themselves. i don't know if that was the real reason. certainly a lot of people have joined in on line to claim that it was because the post was performing so poorly running up to the

. this is interesting for a variety of reasons. first of all, in 2004 when he was the architect for george w. bush, you know, legend has it that rove tried to drive a wedge issue on the issue of same-sex marriage of course coming out against it at that point. now he says the republicans could actually have a candidate who supports it, though, let's put the question to connie mack mary bono mack what do you think? possible? >> well i certainly this issue -- i said this weekend to some friends that it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and how. and i think really we're starting to see the debate more about definition. so when you talk about marriage, marriage is a religious institution that i think we ought to protect. and marriage should be between one man and one woman. but i also believe that we ought to afford the same rights and privileges to people who love each other and want to have a family with each other. they ought to be allowed to do that and get all the same rights. >> in california we've had prop 8 which started, people didn't know could they or couldn't they marry their loved one
's special election, he'll face off against democrat elizabeth colbert-bu colbert-bush. >> people love a comeback story, don't they? >> he says he is going to support his sister. >> all right. one more story to tell you about, folks. the man whose 911 call may have prevented a campus massacre at the university of central florida speaking out saying how it all went down. police say suspect james cumaran pulled the fire arm at the ufc dorm when his roommate came out to investigate the suspect. allegedly pointed an assault rifle right at him. here's what he told anderson cooper. >> i was not going to let him shoot me. i just slammed the door, locked it and i moved away from the door in case he fired at the door. i took some cover in my room so he wouldn't, like, be able to -- the pull lets wouldn't be able to penetrate anything and i called 911. >> completely calm for someone who has just gone through that. by the time officers arrived, he was dead from a self inflicted gunshot wound. he had detailed plans for a campus massacre, four homemade bombs, handgun, assault weapon and 1,000 round
and former governor jeb bush for none other than hillary clinton in 2016. a quinnipiac university poll the other day found floridians would support the former secretary of state and first lady 52-42% over senator rubio and 51-40% over former governor bush. hmm. >>> overwhelming american support for gun background checks. so, why is that not translating into overwhelming support on capitol hill? i'll talk to congressman jim hines next. >>> and great balls of fire. just what was that light that so many folks saw in the sky last night? we will talk about that, too. you're watching msnbc, the place for poll ticks. we're taking downy to the streets. which shirt feels more expensive? that one's softer. it's the same t-shirt. really? this one was washed in downy. why spend a lot of money when you can just use downy? downy's putting our money where our soft is. try downy softness. love it or your money back. has oats that can help lower cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be heal
'm paraphrasing, but that basically what he said. that the commitment that george w. bush got before he was president flying by helicopter by ariel sharon. that's the size of israel and how close it is to its neighbors that netanyahu wanted to hear. >> andrea, chuck todd brought up two-state solution, of course, today. any chance that obama can nudge netanyahu toward that or is the threat from iran right now too much to even go there? >> they are talking about it but i think it will be in john kerry's lap and he will be here saturday night. after going to jordan with the president we will double back to jerusalem, have dinner with netanyahu, have dinner with a couple of advisers on both sides, and they will try to move this along. it is a big stretch. my colleague, veteran journalist here, martin fletcher of nbc, says it is hard for them to come up with a new configuration. you have ynetanyahu out of a ne election. you have palestinian authority. so how you have negotiations and what the formula would be and israel surrounded byis lathe fund meantlism and war in syria, it just really is
that will succeed. >> david from joins me now, formform er speech write for president bush. david, joe biden long supported an assault weapons ban. but when the gun task force when he started talking about what their ideas were, he didn't even mention his remarks or anything about assault weapons ban. so he also down played it. is he triying to play both side of the coin? >> it is hard to understand what the president is playing. it's been evident for a long time in the democratic majority senate, the votes aren't there for an assault weapons ban. and second, an even more relevant, i think few experts in the issue think that an assault weapons ban is anything like a top priority item in the field of gun safety. i mean a spectacular and hor ib as the crimes committed with assault weapons are, the day in and day out toll on americans comes from handguns, not assault weapons. and we're concerned about background checks and people domestic violence convictions or court orders. so why not do the thing that is easier to pass and has more political support and the answer may have to do with internal dem

[inaudible conversations] >> okay. we have explored now in some depth the state of iraq today and have looked at what the war has cost the american taxpayer and the american economy and how that relates to the fiscal problems that we are facing today. and we turn now to the geopolitical losses of
family next week. karl rove, a former senior adivsor, deputy chief of staff to president bush and a fox news contribute tore. all this is about money and how we spend it is what we cut to. okay, karl, is it a good decision to go forward with this knowing schoolkids in california have been shut out, et cetera? >> well, look it was a bad decision to cancel the white house tours. you can't tell me in the several 10 of billions of dollars budget of the homeland security department you couldn't have found $74,000 a week to continue the white house tours? cut out some conferences. cut out some waste. cut out phony programs and fund the white house tours. but having made that decision, it would be made in my opinion, even worse if you canceled the historic easter egg roll which is in part funded with private fund as you say, involves 35,000 people come to it and would have made it look worse. bill: do you think they dig a deeper hole if the cancel the egg roll? >> sure. bill: optics are terrible, karl. i think the picture looks awful but the public is shut out but the politics of, the politici
